Many Prayers Shall be Said for the Arrival of Mahdi

In His noble book, Allah Almighty says:

هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَ دِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُشْرِكُونَ (التوبة – 33)

“He is the one who sent down his prophet with guidance and the true religion to make it defeat all religions even if it makes the infidels sad.”

According to this declaration by the Noble Quran, Islam will gain clear victory over other religions and there will remain no human on earth except for those who confess the prophetic mission of Muhammad (PBUH). However, this prophecy has not yet come true and it will inevitably happen in the future. This verse and the prophecy about dominance of the true religion of Islam over all religions will come true by the arrival of the promised Mahdi. However, Mahdi’s arrival depends on God’s will, and it will happen only by God’s order when the scene is set.

No one can predict the rise of Mahdi, but his enthusiasts shall await his arrival always and every moment. Hence, all of those who are waiting for Mahdi and wish to witness his arrival shall pray more than ever for “acceleration of victory”, which means that people shall ask God Almighty to set the scene for the promised rise of Mahdi and remove the obstacles in his way to appear. Therefore, we, Muslims, have the obligation to pray to Allah Almighty at any time, numerously and heartily in order to hasten the arrival of the promised Mahdi. And, the best times for these prayers are: after every mandatory prayer, in the dawn, sunrise, sunset and while it is raining.

It shall be noted that people’s efforts also matter. That is, in addition to saying prayers, people shall accelerate the appearance of Mahdi by fulfilling their religious duties, self-purification, piety, serving others, publishing authentic hadiths, and preparing for Mahdi’s arrival.

Mahdi is, indeed, a divine treasure. We hope God graces all humanity by accelerating the blessed rise of the promised Mahdi, who is from Prophet’s Ahl al-Bayt and Fatimah’s generation.

O Muslims! Say a lot of prayers to Allah Almighty for hastening the coming of Mahdi as that would be your ultimate relief.
